My name is Joe....I have Stage 4 non small cell lung cancer with bone mets (T-6)on April 9th. Was having sever pain in my back. Thought the pain was a pulled muscle. Tumor in right lung the size of a grapefruit. several lymph noids involved, and bone mets to my T-6 vertebre. Have had 15 rad treatments to my T-6 vert. and lung, the 5 more at a higher dose to my lung. Dr said could not give rad and chemo at same tiome because the combo would be to tosic for my spine. pain in back has decreased. I have pain in my rib area on the left side now. go back for CT scans on 8th then Dr on 13th. I am hopeing it is not spread to my ribs. Can anyone tell me if the pain can come from the Radiation treatments. or if it is possible the cancer has spread to my Ribs.
